This performance of companionship applies principles of interspecies relations through choreography and image making in order to expand a possible repertoire of human relations. The work proposes the exhibition space as a social art space, and a vital arena for designing and collecting strategies for being together. Diverse registers of visuality and sensibility generate a place of public intimacy and sensitivity proposing the practice of being together as a creative one.
The visitors engage artworks with and through the companionship of the performers and intersubjectivities emerge. Principles of touch, proximity and telepathy, co-create empathetic moments, and modes of communication that may seem otherwise inaccessible in everyday public life.
